ABB develops the first 40kA magnetically actuated outdoor breaker for 38kV

ABB develops the first 40kA magnetically actuated outdoor breaker for 38kV | Technologies and services for distribution of electricity | Scoop.it

First introduced in 2003 for 15 kV and 27 kV applications, the R-MAG breaker utilizes a magnetic actuator that has only one moving part, offering an improvement over the traditional spring charging mechanisms. Additionally, the magnetic actuator requires no regular maintenance during the life of the breaker, thus reducing costly maintenance intervals, while increasing reliability and safety.

ABB PPMV's insight:

R-MAG outdoor breaker is now capable of interrupting up to 40kA at 38kV with a single vacuum interrupter per phase. http://bit.ly/TOFq0g

RiesLing - Germany's first smart Compact Secondary Substation

RiesLing - Germany's first smart Compact Secondary Substation | Technologies and services for distribution of electricity | Scoop.it

The integration of a large number of decentralized renewable energy generators in the distribution network was not something that could have been predicted at the time the network was developed and built. So far, the networks have handled the rapid and enormous expansion. However, the limits of stable network operation have been reached in many areas. The result is capacity bottlenecks in cables and transformers and voltage spikes in the network. One response to these challenges is the ABB's smart Compact Secondary Substation (CSS).

Mission possible: A big step towards self-healing grids in Finland

Mission possible: A big step towards self-healing grids in Finland | Technologies and services for distribution of electricity | Scoop.it

No such kind of magic that would make a grid repair itself has yet been invented. Self-healing refers here to the restoration of the power supply. A self-healing grid locates a fault location, isolates it by opening the closest disconnectors and restores power elsewhere in the grid. This requires a certain grid structure, ie, back-feed supply, grid automation and accurate locating of faults.
